    Interesting tool, I heard a lot from educational sites before but…

    suppose 2 virtual machines hosting many client sites, say one in New York (NY) and another in Berlin (B).
    Suppose only your NY machine provides visual root login and works as a shepherd. How would you manage your NY or B machine?

    Quite easy: 1) create the php login subsystem in both machnes, 2) sftp bash scripts in both machnes, 3) create the interface between php and bash scripts in NY machine, 4) call commands on shepard that will be forwarded to client server. Done!

    The shell is powerfull, the only danger comes from login hijacking but then you have https, ip checking, ip black/white listing etc.

    Tell you the truth it worths making a bash template script with extended use of the source bash command and there you have it: config files, parameters in files, utility files (is integer, is character), task specific files etc.

    Nothing helpful messing with another language on top of bash I think or…. you can mesh with just because you can but see it as another project on top of the previous giant list!

    That’s a great tool. Thanks for sharing. Found one error though.
    In your last example, the second line should read:
    from fabric.api import env, sudo
